Fit, Function, and Style


Summer in Chicago brings all kinds of weather, from hot and humid to cool and rainy, and as someone who's office includes an outdoor arena, I am always on the lookout for apparel that helps me move from one kind of weather to the next, all the while providing performance and of course, style! That is why I am absolutely in love with the Adare Short Sleeve Polo in Fuchsia. The slim fit is super flattering, and the breathable moisture wicking fabric is perfect on a warmer day. The best part? Paired with a cute pair of flats, and skinny jeans, I can take the look from work to a casual dinner with friends with ease.

On days when I have to be in the show ring, I look for the same kinds of form and function - I love wearing products that allow me to be an even better rider and provide style. There is something to be said for looking your best, feeling your best and then of course - performing your best!

The O'Shea Spectator Shirt is absolutely gorgeous. Providing a versatile take on the classic show shirt, this crisp looking shirt is handcrafted with Italian stretch cotton, and features a delicate lilac herringbone with a gingham contrast collar and cuffs. This shirt pairs perfectly with the Malone Show Coat. The grey contrasts the black piping and creates an overall elegant look! Another OS essential is the Spectator Shirt (I have a white one, as you see in the photo with Kenya), and am thrilled to have a second color option of pewter! This shirt can be worn while I am working or on the go. My go to look is always the Spectator Shirt tucked in with black brtiches. I love a super crisp, modern look and can easily take it down to a casual feel by unluckily the shirt and pairing with indigo or even black jeans! The sky really is the limit with this shirt.

Working and living in OS Apparel fits beautifully into my life. It allows me to mantian tradition, with impeccable fit, function, and of course, style.
